A group of explorers and scientists were sent to investigate the discovery. Upon arrival they set up base camp near an abandoned structure. They studied and explored the river, falling in love with its power and the nature living along its banks. Inspired by the river, they developed a sustainable camp for others to visit and explore so they too, could learn more about the jungle and how their connection to the waters of the world.

They probably mean unique to the US. Also, River Quest isn't the only rapids with an elevator!

Probably unique from the manufacturer. I can't think of an Intamin that has a vertical lift. :V

I'm always fond of a good rapids ride though. The video promises something interesting. :)

I don't like this. it's a river rapids ride. Since when do rivers invest in elevators? lol

^ Since the invention of a lock ;)

I think it would be a lot cooler though if they really used a lock mechanism to bring the boats op to the right height.

I was excited until I saw it was Intamin. Think Pilgrim's Plunge & Shoot the Rapids.

Intamin has made tons of rapids rides already. This won't be a water coaster.

Chiapas at Phantasialand is also made by Intamin, they have had some problems but everything seem to be running pretty good now.

Possibly, perhaps double up as life jackets/boucancy aid to throw to an overboard rider.
